A 23-year-old man has claimed that he was sodomised twice by a beauty and wedding boutique owner in Arau and then blackmailed by the transvestite who he befriended via WeChat.
A 30-year-old suspect was picked up on Saturday and remanded for a week after the victim lodged a police report, Kosmo! Ahad reported.
The paper quoted OCPD Supt Ku Yaacob Ku Hamad as saying that the victim told police he went to the boutique at around midnight that day.
"He claimed that as soon as he entered the premises the suspect pounced and hit him on the head," Supt Ku Yaacob told the paper.
A few hours after the incident the victim received an SMS threat.
"The suspect also threatened to share videos and pictures on Facebook of the victim being sodomised," said Supt Ku Yaacob, adding that police were waiting for the medical report.
